Great site!

I have been teaching myself Hebrew for years and although I have learned a great deal (and read better than I speak), I am not nearly where I desire to be. I could not read a book, for instance. This site will help.

I truly feel HASHEM hears prayers. I am so desperate to learn Hebrew and today i ran into this lesson. and it made my day. Please continue to have these "heart delights" treats for us who so much want to connect w our heritage.

great lessons

Me too.
Although a mature adult , I love the format .
Just enough to remember.
It is great that the written language is paired with the spoken.
